Two Low Carbon Vehicle Technologies projects receive £6 million from EPSRC

Professor Peter Bruce and Professor Patrick Grant from Materials at Oxford are part of a new ELEctrochemical Vehicle Advanced Technology (ELEVATE) project which will develop better materials for energy storage devices such as fuel cells and batteries and improve integration between devices, vehicles and power grids. 

New facility to focus on Materials
A collaboration between Oxford University, Diamond Light Source, and Johnson Matthey will create a world-class materials characterisation facility at the Harwell Science and Innovation Campus, Oxfordshire.
David Cockayne Centre for Electron Microscopy
On 17th July the Department held an opening ceremony for the newly refurbished “David Cockayne Centre for Electron Microscopy” showcasing five new electron microscopes which have been installed this year significantly expanding the capabilities of the Department’s Electron Microscopy and Microanalysis facility.
